Standard Specification for Perfluoroalkoxy (PFA)-Fluorocarbon Resin Molding and Extrusion Materials
|Publication Date:||15 March 2006|
|ICS Code (Other rubber and plastics products):||83.140.99|
This specification covers melt processable molding and extrusion materials of PFA-perfluoro(alkoxy
This specification is intended to provide a means for calling out plastic materials used in the fabrication of end items or parts. It is not intended for the selection of materials. Material selection should be made by those having expertise in the plastics field after careful consideration of the design and the performance required of the part, the environment to which it will be exposed, the fabrication process to be employed, the costs involved, and the inherent properties of the material other than those covered by this specification.
This specification does not cover recycled plastics.2
The tests involved are intended to provide information for identifying the materials covered. It is not the function of this specification to provide engineering data for design purposes. Specimens prepared by injection molding or extrusion could yield test results that may vary from the values in this specification.
The values stated in SI units3 are to be regarded as standard. The values given in brackets are for information only.
The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test methods portions, Sections 8 and 9 of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
NOTE 1-This specification, ISO 12086-1(2006), and ISO 12086-2(2006) differ in approach or detail. Data obtained using either may not be technically equivalent.
A Summary of Changes section appears at the end of this standard.
